Samurai Jack Volume 3: Quest for the Broken Blade by Andy Suriano

After the Threads of Time failed to return Jack back to the past, he searches for a new way to return to his rightful era.

But will Jack be willing to risk his magical blade in order to open a new portal to the past?


First off, this book isn’t released yet.  The release date is set for March 31st, 2015.

I must admit, while I have heard of Samurai Jack, I didn’t really know that much about him at all. I didn’t know that this graphic novel would include robots and aliens for instance. It took me a couple of pages to catch up, but once I did I was flying!

This story has lots of action, suspense, humor, and some really excellent life lessons about being stronger than you think you are and doing the right thing! The flashbacks were well timed and easy to follow. You really feel like you know the character that much more from having these glimpses into their pasts!

I can’t wait to hear more about Samurai Jack! Not only will I be getting volumes 1 and 2 to catch up, but I’ll be looking forward to volume 4 as well!

* I rate this book 8/10*

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.


I had been meaning to read this book for a long time, but i kept hearing about how similar it was to Twilight. I really just didnt want to be dissapointed. It turns out i didnt need to worry. It wasnt like Twilight in many ways, and i was not dissapointed!

First off, Katy is a very relatable character. Im not just talking about the fact that she loves books and is a book blogger. She is not so sure of herself, yet she`s brave, she`s witty and intellegent, and she doesnt take anyone`s attitude!

While the male protagonist is a massive jerk, he seems to have quite a few layers. I loved him, I hated him. I made excuses for him. I expect lots from him in the next books!

Heads up my friends, the story gets a tad steamy.  Passed kissing, yet not all the way. Just thought Id warn you. While I enjoyed it emencely…I had no warning.  I know that a lot of younger kids are reading teen books, and I just want everyone to know what they`re/ their kids are heading into. Awesomeness!! plus a smidge of sexual content. 😉

This is a refreshing book! It is different in all the best ways. Just when you think the story is going to be predictable, BAM! You are taken to new places my friend!

Go ahead, get obsessed!

Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman

Fortunately the Milk is the tallest of tall tales. This story about a dad who goes out to grab some milk. It seems like it should be a straight forward outing, buy it turns out to be anything but.

This book has a little bit of everything, from aliens and pirates to dinosaurs and time travel. Just when you think it cannot possibly get any crazier, it manages to blow your mind with another plot twist!

Will the milk survive this hilarious
adventure?

I think this book is perfect for anyone! Parents, read it out loud to ur kids! Kids, read it out loud to your parents! Adults, need a break from your grown up books? This super quick read will leave a smile on your face for sure! Try it out!
